Tangent Recycles Plastic into Building Materials

It is no secret that our environment has been overtaken by plastic waste. It’s in the ditches on the side of the road, in landfills, and floating in our rivers and oceans. Fortunately, there are many companies and manufacturers out there that are taking plastic waste and creating sustainable building materials from it. Tangent Materials is one of those companies. Tangent recycles post-consumer and post-industrial plastic waste into building materials that can have a second life.

Tangent takes great pride in being able to help reduce the amount of plastic that goes into our environment. We take in post-industrial and post-consumer HDPE plastic waste like milk jugs and laundry detergent bottles and let the magic of our manufacturing process create an environmentally-friendly, fully recyclable, plastic lumber board. 

Did you know that Tangent is a certified closed-loop manufacturer? A third-party company comes in to do a yearly check-up of how Tangent recycles. This means our products can continue to be reused! We can take our waste and re-use it, again and again, to continue manufacturing our building materials- making us an environmentally-friendly and virtually no-waste facility. 

When you choose Tangent, you’re choosing to help the environment and use green building materials that you can be confident in for years to come. Give us a call today and let us know how we can help your next project be sustainable and environmentally-friendly!
